  2. Had the fortune to know Sam and work with him over many years at the Ford Research Centre in Geelong and Broadmeadows. A beautiful person with a great sense of humour. He was a talented engineer liked by all that knew him. We shared many trips to and from Geelong to the research centre with a great bunch from the trim shop, Colour and trim group. Royston Bell, Graham Hemley and Don Thomson. Top bloke was Sam, Rest In Peace mate.
